The Walker/McKnight site mnartists.org is a treasure trove of weird and well-produced art. Case in point, the curious couture of Northeast Minneapolis’ Rebecca Yaker. An artist and entrepeneur (and Minnesota Rollergirl), her portfolio includes an un-Prom dress made from sock monkeys, an entire outfit crafted from “toy foods (tomatoes, cheese slices, roast beef, white bread, bologna, hamburgers, and lettuce), clear vinyl, and plastic coated metal,” and this sweet Fruit Roll-Up Western Shirt:
This shirt is constructed entirely out of various fruit roll-ups–strawberry, tropical fruit, and electric blue (not really a recognizable favor, but it’s tasty)–finished with rhinestone snaps up the center placket. It was nearly impossible not to eat my supplies, but somehow I managed not to.
